Lyrics

I've seen it all boys
I've been all over
Been everywhere in the
whole wide world
I rode the high line
with old blind Darby
I danced real slow
with Ida Jane
I was full of wonder
when I left Murfreesboro
Now I am full of hollow
on Maxwell street
And I hope my Pony
I hope my Pony
I hope my Pony
knows the way back home

I walked from Natchez
to Hushpukena
I built a fire by the side
of the road
I worked for nothin in a
Belzoni saw mill. I caught a
blind out on the B and O
Talullah's friendly Belzoni ain't so
A 44'll get you 99

And I hope my Pony
I hope my Pony
I hope my Pony
Knows the way back home

I run my race with burnt face Jake
gave him a Manzanita cross
I lived on nothin
but dreams and train smoke
Somehow my watch and chain
got lost.
I wish I was home in Evelyn's Kitchen
with old Gyp curled around my feet
(Chorus)
